The Science of Public Speaking

Dr. Jim Anderson Speaks, Trains, Coachs, and Provides Consulting To Help People Become Great CommunicatorsCreating and delivering speeches that connect with an audience and cause change to happen is not luck, it’s a science. Nobody knows more about the science of public speaking  than Dr. Jim Anderson.

“I don’t embrace speakers who give me excuses about why their speeches don’t work, I embrace solutions.”

Over the last 25 years, Dr. Anderson has transformed failing public speakers worldwide. Dr. Anderson will turn these ineffective talkers into powerful communicators.

Dr. Jim Anderson believes that great business skills are no substitute for poor presentation skills. All too often some of a company’s best innovations and problem solving skills are locked up within its staff.

They struggle to communicate their ideas using overloaded PowerPoint slides, rambling speeches, and confusing jargon. No matter if it’s the entry level programmer or the CEO, poor communication skills mean that their talent & ideas will remain untapped.

What if there was someone who could speak their language? What if there was someone who could help them build on the technical skills that they already have and teach them how to reach out to both technical and non-technical audiences in order to capture their minds and imaginations?

This blog, “The Accidental Communicator“, is where Dr. Jim Anderson shares the knowledge that he has gained while working with individual speakers and audiences for over 25 years.  His refreshing sense of humor, deep technical knowledge about how we communicate, and his superb communication skills drive what you’ll find in this blog.

Welcome to the premier blog for quickly conquering your fears and improving your public speaking, presentation & communication skills.

The Accidental Communicator blog is a publication of Blue Elephant Consulting. Blue Elephant Consulting uses our unique public speaking  evaluation tools to show technical professionals, technical departments, and professional associations located in the United States how to evaluate their public speaking skills, determine what needs to be improved, and then provides proprietary speaking , consulting, group  conference call coaching, and digital training products and services to help implement these changes.

Dear Mr. Andrerson,

I’m Jose Moliner, cofounder of, what some people call “the Linkedin for events”.

We are slowly having more and more readers in our blog (reaching around 2000 speakers per month, plus other 1000s who are not speaker).

As we haven’t still invited any guest bloggers, we thought about opening this opportunity to others. I’ve seen that you’ve written articles about public speaking and would like to invite you to write for us.

Let me know if you would be interested.

Jose Moliner

Dear Jim,
I enjoy reading your blog and sometimes try to share your posts on my Facebook timeline. But your blog’s template does not allow FB to show the images you have in your post. It shows your ad from the sidebar which does not look good when posted on FB. Most of the time I end up not posting your stuff because of how it looks. I would encourage you to update to a more current theme which takes better advantage of social media and looks better. It will also give a better impression than a theme that is old.

William: Thanks for being willing to share my content. I hear what you are saying and when I get the time, I’ll take a look and see if I can get a better theme…
